re: Poker & Open Face Chinese
the only place I have ever heard of OFC being spread live is at the WSOP
, but perhaps a Cali casino or card room runs it, maybe Foxwoods - its a very low rake game so they dont spread it in very many places
there are many apps that will allow you to play for free. PINEAPPLE POKER is a great one, follows all the real rules to the letter, even the correct royalty system. They have tourneys too, fun app.
as far as strategy goes for OFC, its all a numbers game, cant bluff, there is no betting, you just pay or earn for points made - you can find all of the rules online as well, just make sure they are credible and accurate (ask here and we can check the site you are getting rules from if you wish)
lots of info out there about PLO, also lots of free places to play, most poker sites
will offer free games of plo, some apps out there too for portables
